HALE Macrobiotic Cuisine

HALE in Hawaiian means "home," in Japanese, "sunny," and in Old English, "health." It is with these different meanings in mind that the owners opened this restaurant in Hawaii in 2009. Before this, Moko and Isamu Kubota had already logged over 20 years of experience with restaurants in Japan and Hawaii. Moko's mother was vegetarian, and this prompted them to offer healthy and tasty vegetarian food with organic ingredients in their Honolulu restaurant. Popular entrees include sweet and sour veggie meat and island fish burger. HALE Macrobiotic Cuisine 1427 Makaloa Street Honolulu, HI 96814 (808) 944-1555
